When our amazing Photog Friendor besties asked us to be models for a ‘live couple’ photo class, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity! Sarah from ‘This Rad Love’ and Kaye from ‘Oh Kaye Love’ teamed up to create ‘The UnWorkshop’, a photography workshop for bad ass women. Their vision was to host a slumber party for a weekend in San Diego to inspire, teach, and to collaborate on ideas that surrounded the world captured in photographs. Using Belmont Park, and the San Diego Boardwalk as the setting, ‘The UnWorkshop’ and its girlgang, directed us, and propped us, to express our love and to capture each moment as it was happening.
How sweet it is. The first stop, ICE CREAM! Being in the middle of an amusement park just brings out the inner kid inside. We couldn’t help ourselves from eating these delicious treats before they started to become a melted mess. Once the sprinkle party was over, it was HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GROUND! SPLAT! Game Time. We took full advantage of the opportunity to be on the other side of the carnival game. Every color of the balloons fills in the background for such a playful setting.
Continuing along the board walk, we stopped in for a cold beer. The direction for this shoot was to just be ourselves, act like there weren’t 9 girls taking photos of us. This is one of my favorite shoots. It was so intimate to be with one another and just let things happen and come natural, oh, and duh, the beer! This really shows our chemistry and who we really are when we are with one another.
It wouldn’t be a proper ending to a beautiful day in San Diego, without catching the sunset on the beach. We got to run our feet in the sand, and run from waves crashing to shore. The awesome grey tones in the sky totally set the mood with the white wash from the water. We couldn’t help but be complete nerds on this one. Ending the day right, and keeping the smiles lasting.
To ‘The Unworkshop’, This Rad Love, Oh Kaye Love, and to each photographer that captured all our moments, we could not thank you enough!
X's & O's,
Tawnee & Luis
